July 29

Day 121 Bennington, VT Zero Day 1610.6 miles total

Nice relaxing day in Bennington. Like this town. Cool, walkable downtown area.

The AT diet is a calorie based program. You eat as many calories as possible. Breakfast…3 blueberry pancakes, 2 eggs, potatoes, and toast. Lunch…2 slices of pizza. Dinner…jambalaya.  

Met John, Director of Bennington Visitor Center, at local pub this afternoon. Invited me to his neighbor’s house. Got to hang around pool and drink beer for a couple hours. Almost felt like a normal human.

Will be making my way to Rutland, VT next. About 70 miles so hoping to be there Wednesday. Long time friend and high school classmate, Jerry, meeting me there. Coming in from AZ to sherpa a few days!

Happy trails!

  1. Wow what a diet. I imagine you’re looking forward to home and Kris’ cooking. You certainly are making great friends and reacquainting along the way. It somewhat restores my faith in humanity. How cool that your friend will join you soon!!! Great job and keep trekking Just Pete🚶🚶🚶


  2. What a delightful time in Bennington. Dad’s mouth was watering when he saw your breakfast!! Just think you will be getting done soon and then you can hang around YOUR pool and feel human again!! Greet Jerry and have a wonderful time together. Stay safe. Love You, MOM
